Catch Basin Drains Alleviate Basement Flooding

D. Kyle Stearns Contracting has installed catch basin drains to prevent basement flooding. A catch basin is defined as a reservoir or well into which surface water may drain off. When you have a wet basement, something about your landscape is drawing water toward your foundation. A poorly drained landscape can create problems for you in the house. One of the major culprits to basement flooding is downspout water. There are signs that water from your roof is not being collected in your gutters, or your downspouts are not positioned properly. In periods of heavy rains, water may infiltrate into the house and create other problems. Besides damage to flooring, stored items, furniture and carpeting, damp conditions can encourage mold growth.

An effective remedy for basement flooding is to re-route the downspout water. This can be accomplished with a properly constructed catch basin.
